    As others have said, it's a ever changing cycle. Although, Dodgers have some serious catching up to do as of late.

    It should be an interesting rivalry the next 10 years though.

    it's a great rivalry, adds spice to the sport. all the ribbing back and forth with dogers fans is in good fun. truth is, secretly a lot of us wanted it to come down to the final game of the season just for dramatic effect. even better, a postseason face off!

    Buddy, no they are not. I don't think you even read what I wrote. Again, the twenty-second Dodger pennant you are talking about is the pennant the Dodgers won in 1889, before they were part of the national league.

    http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/LAD/

    Click on the link and scroll down. In order for the Dodgers to have 22 pennants, you have to count the one pennant they won while they were members of the American Association. The league folded and the Dodgers joined the National League.

    Bottom line: national league pennants Dodgers have 21.

    It obviously is an interesting question, however, whether the statistics from American Association teams should count. It makes a mess of things: some teams don't count them and some do. For example, the Cardinals (also an American Association team originally) said they will not count wins from the period that they were members of the league. Apparently other teams disagree with that. Also, should the "World Series" that was played between the AA and the NL during that reign count? If so, the Giants have actually won the championship 9 times, not 7. I believe MLB does not officially count it however.

    It's a good question though. Something to think about if you're into the history of the game.

    It sure is, but keep it in their American Association history, doesn't count towards their NL history

    Speculate. But we can't ban accounts unless there's concrete evidence.

    I know, plus your post is probably a spot-on assessment.

    I didn't know Zito, Vogelsong, Scutaro, and Pence were homegrown.

    I don't think it's that hard to grasp what he was saying. The core of our roster is homegrown (Posey, Belt, Crawford, Sandoval, Lincecum, Cain, Bumgarner, Romo, Wilson) with a few that aren't (Scutaro [assuming he re-signs], Pence, and Vogelsong)

    Actually, Vogelsong was originally a Giant ... but calling him home grown in a stretch.
